Sculpture courses, classes and workshops taught all across the UK. Sculpture is the artistic process of creating shape and form in three dimensions. You might wish to try sculpting with stone, textiles (Powertex courses are very popular), wire, bronze or perhaps ceramics and clay are more your thing? Willow and wood of course are excellent materials to sculpt with and whittling has the advantage of requiring no large spaces or tools. Courses are available for both experienced and budding beginner sculptors. Learn sculpting techniques with experienced tutors and discover the joy of being creative!
